post #101 of 6207
I currently have a Logitech M510 and I really like the shape of it, but it isn't for gaming and it is wireless.

1. What's your grip style?
A mix between claw and fingertip, but more on the side of claw.
2. What's your sensitivity?
About 10-11 cm per 360
3. What's your maximum budget?
$35, but I will most likely be buying used.
4. Do you want additional buttons?
Yes, I want the two on the side.
5. What games do you play?
TF2, COD4, CS:S
6. Do you mind about prediction?
Not really.
7. Other relevant information:
Need it to be wired

I'm looking at Logitech G400 and G500 and Razer Deathadder but I want some more suggestions. Help is appreciated.

Hi everyone,

My current storm sentinel advance is having some scroll wheel issues, and the mouse click buttons are actually squeaking, on top of some other issues that are beginning to annoy me. It's a great mouse although I haven't had it too long, but I want (and kinda need) a new mouse. So here's what I'm looking for:

1. What's your grip style?
I don't mind, I'm good with claw and palm grips (right handed though)

2. What's your sensitivity?
I don't usually go higher than around 3000 - 3200dpi (high I know), but I would like to be able to go to around 5000 (just as a bit of headroom, I use 3800 dpi on CS:S but my in game sensitivity is 2). That said, I'll definitely consider a zowie AM or a deathadder (doesn't have to be a million billion dpi). i can just change my in game sensitivity.

3. What's your maximum budget?
No limit, but for me to pay $100+ for a mouse it better be worth it.

4. Do you want additional buttons?
Definitely two side buttons and if the mouse supports on board memory etc, some profile/ dpi adjustment buttons.

5. What games do you play?
CS:S and BF3, minecraft

6. Do you mind about prediction?
Prefer to be without it, or at least be able to turn it off.

7. Other relevant information:
Wired, don't really want wireless, and I do like some lighting on my mice (not essential, but it's cool, and sometimes helpful)

Don't mind if it's optical or laser, just laser mice seem to be more modern and have newer stuff and more dpi adjustment etc. I've looked at a bunch of mice (sensei, deathadder, ikari, naos 5000, ghost m8000x, storm sentinel, g500, g400, KONE+, and some others too) and still can't really decide, so any help would be really appreciated (sick of these late night review-watching sessions, getting so tired =P).

Thanks in advance!

I currently have a logitech g500 and i am very satisfied with it.

1. I use palm grip

2. I use about 3200 dpi, though it is very customizable and you can switch dpi settings on the fly (you can save up to 6 different dpi levels to choose from)

3. I paid about $40 shipped from newegg when it was one sale. Worth every dollar and then some. Paid $50 for a razer mouse on sale. I liked it alot, but not as much as the g500. That and it didnt work on my current hard mousepad (mionix brand, can't remember name of the surface itself)

4. The two back/forward buttons and the third thumb button between the back/forward and the memory buttons are enough for me. I personally like simpler mice. You can also add/remove weights from the mice which is a plus for me.

5. I play alot of shooters, especially bf3. I also play some rts like sc2 and others such as skyrim and assassins creed.

6. I prefer it off.

7. I like wired mice better. The g500 has a braided cord. As for lights, it glows red on some of the buttons but it is minimal (in a good way). It looks good in the dark but it doesnt light the whole room up.

Edit: i also really like my roommate's steelseries mouse. The design is MUCH more conservative and it works very well. I believe the feet are teflon. It glides real well. Can't remember which model i was however :sly:

Hey everyone,

I'm in the process of optimizing all of my peripherals for my computer to actually suite me as I am spending a greater amount of time playing games that require comfortable use, namely League of Legends. Right now I use a G500 which cramps my hand and I find generally uncomfortable. I also have a G5, was ok, and Razer Mamba, which I do not like the glide of and seems for more of a palm grip. I'd never really considered the grip of a mouse until I read the sticky about finding a mouse a few moments ago. Hence I am adding a post to look for recommendations from the community. All contributions will be greatly appreciated, cheers cheers.gif

1. What's your grip style? I feel as though my natural grip is claw

2. What's your sensitivity? Around 1800 dpi

3. What's your maximum budget? No budget, all suggestions considered

4. Do you want additional buttons? Like at least 1 or two side buttons to use as a PTT for ventrilo

5. What games do you play? League of Legends

6. Do you mind about prediction? didn't even realize my mouse had this, so would like one I can turn off, prediction in this game is bad

7. Other relevant information: right handed, adjustable or light weight, wired, want to avoid a hard button activation force as League is click intensive, onboard memory would be nice, suppose low LOD as I lift up mouse to adjust on pad frequently

8. Mousepad? Currently play on a Steelseries 9HD Large but also have a QcK Mass

Edit: Added LOD

I wouldn't recommend the Naga at the moment because as basically any recent Razer mouse with the Twin-Eye sensor it has Dynamic DPI Scaling activated, which basically is a form of acceleration. I hope Razer release an alternative firmware where this thing is off, but until then I highly suggest to stay away from them. Well and because of a similar reason I'd also stay away from the G500.
The G400 is fine, as is the CM Storm Spawn and Xornet and maybe Zowie AM (although some people have a few issues with it). Razer Deathadder and Abyssus would be another viable option although the older batches of the latter have some jittering problems and these mice are not firmware upgradeable. Therefore you should try to get a recent one, which might not be that easy atm.

the thing is with the death adder; I've only got 2 additional buttons and I don't really like/used to keybinding all my abilities for SWTOR.........

anything else that can be recommended for an MMO? redface.gif

Ordered the Zowie EC2, not sure if it's the same mouse. If I don't like it I'll look around and see if the model you listed is different.
